Step 1 — Atomic Age Clock 




• Cut 2 pieces of cardboard into 
circles that are 3 1/2" in diameter. 
Hot glue them together to make 
them stronger, avoiding the center 
for when you drill later. Measure 
and draw 2 perpendicular lines 
intersecting in the center. Drill 
through that center mark with a 
piece of wood behind the cardboard 
for safety. 



Step 2 




• Paint the front and sides of your 
clock face. While that dries, sand, 
cut and spray paint 12 13" dowels.

Step 3 




• On the back of your clock face, 
draw 6 equidistant lines 
intersecting in the center as your 
guide. 



Step 4 




• Cut away any excess material 
around the center hole with a utility 
knife so the clock can fit.

Step 5 




• Align both 12 o'clocks on your 
clock and grid before gluing the two 
pieces together. Be careful not to 
get any hot glue on the center 
piece.

Step 7 




• Using the grid as your guide, hot 
glue your dowels onto the back of 
the clock. Using a roll of tape can 
stabilize the surface area for this 
step. A bird's eye view can help 
you see if the dowels align. 



Step 8 




• Add a screw to the perfect spot and 
hang your atomic age clock.
